Hello ^^

I joined today and I can see that this place is very active and it's awesome! :)

How I got into being a betta owner, was in December 2013, I went to Petco to get a fish while I was in a dorm. It was very lonely there so I thought a fish would cheer me up. A fish associate introduced me to bettas, and fell in love.
My mother bought me a .5 gallon with a sad blue betta.

I knew I should have gotten at least a 2 gallon but my mom thought it would be too big for my dorm so I had to say yes.
2 days later, Khuna died.

My grandmother gave me a $100 a pushed me away, and so I got my second betta, Ketzi (short for Quetzocoatl), 3.5 gallon, a heater, and a filter. I've had him for 3 months now and he's happy as can be! ^o^

Sorry for the long story, but I would love to hear your story about how you got into bettas. :D

Hello and welcome to the forum

Sorry about Khuna :( Best of luck with Ketzi. He's a beauty.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
